Auction in Lebanon
In the market business, galleries should promote their own artists and find buyers to blow up a better price for artists.
The question here is why doesn't Ayyam Gallery use the usual auction houses in the Gulf such as Christies to continue promoting their artists?
So what are the credentials of a gallery to go into the bidding process and who estimates works of art?
The online catalogue is nicely presented. And the choice of artwork is worth the look!
